The Worthington City Council will have a brief agenda Tuesday night when it conducts its final meeting of the year.
One of the few items on Tuesday’s agenda concerns recommendations for city committee appointments. The Nominating Committee met on Dec. 14 and made recommendations for council members to consider.
Among them is Karen Feit to be appointed to a first three-year term on the Center for Active Living committee, replacing Dick Schlichte, who has declined to serve a second term. If approved, Feit’s term would expire Dec. 31, 2025.
There are two additional new committee appointments to be considered. For the city’s nominating committee, Robyn Moser has been recommended for a first five-year term to replace Darlene Macklin, who has served two full terms. Moser’s term would expire Nov. 30, 2027. Also, Chip Peters has been recommended for appointment to the city’s Traffic & Safety Committee for a first three-year term that would expire Dec. 30, 2025. He would replace Chris Heinrichs, who has declined to serve a second term.
Committee reappointments to be considered by the council Tuesday are McNay Nkashama and Paul LaRoche for the Cross Cultural Advisory Committee and Susan Middagh for the Public Arts Commission.
This year’s final city council meeting will be the last with Mike Kuhle serving as Worthington’s mayor. Kuhle was first elected to the mayoral post in 2014 and then re-elected in 2018. Kuhle, who opted earlier this year to not seek a third term, also sent eight years on the city council. Rick von Holdt was elected as the city’s new mayor in November.
